Gov. Fallin proclaims 'Oklahoma Homeschool Week'

"More than 2,000 homeschooled children and their parents are visiting the Oklahoma State Capitol," the Associated Press reports.
Throngs of people packed the rotundas on the second and fourth floors of the Capitol building to listen to speakers tout the important role that parents play in educating their children.

Gov. Mary Fallin addressed the group and says she supports a wide range of education options for Oklahoma children, including public schools, charter schools, online learning, and homeschooling. The Republican governor also signed a proclamation declaring this week "Oklahoma Homeschool Week."

Here's a brief clip I shot with my iPhone. 

UPDATE: The Oklahoman's Michael McNutt has a good write-up here.
